the fundamental direction that is we should take in regards to foreign policy in iraq, but also the personal element there. i think people always forget a lot of this stuff is personal, and it seemed in the tone of mccain's questions it was personal. >> it does seem that, and, of course, there was the fact that hagel did not endorse barack obama, but in the middle of that mccain-obama campaign he went to the war zones along side barack obama. it was an implicit endorsement. his wife did endorse obama in that campaign. politics are personal. jim, there's some concern by some that assuming that chuck hagel gets confirmed he will be a weaker secretary of defense within the cabinet, that policy will be run even more so out of the white house, out of the nsc because he has gone through this process, and doesn't have a strong political base himself within the administration. >> well, you know, that was the rap against william cohen. if you remember, a republican who served under the president -- democratic administration of president clinton. now, if people here in the building say, look, you know
